Frequently Asked Questions

As the most commonly used system Conventional Cantilever Racking is manufactured in heavy duty steel and used in warehouses and yards for storing long lengths of product in particular timber, panel products, laminates, metals and PVCu extrusions. Whatever long products you wish to store Stakapal will advise you how to maximise the available storage area and exactly which racking solution will specifically meet your requirements.

Conventional Cantilever Racking consists of vertical upright columns with arms attached at variable heights. Brace frames are located at the back of the racks to increase the load capacity along with integral bases that support the overall structure. Arms can be adapted to accommodate specific load bearing requirements and designed to suit any pack size to fully maximise the available area.

Systems are available in both double-sided and single-sided configurations. Single-sided racks can fit flush against the wall. A Double-sided configuration allows the racking to be used from either side, and can be used throughout the warehouse, creating storage space on either side of the central column.

Cantilever Racking can also be referred to as Christmas Tree Racking or Tree Racking due to the shape of the structure with the vertical bar racks being similar to a tree. Other phrases used include Horizontal Bar Racking and Bar Racking.
